Guilty Plea in Deadly Gang-Related Shooting
DES MOINES, Iowa — A Des Moines man will serve up to 30 years in prison in connection with a deadly shooting last year.
Nineteen-year-old Jahmar Mustin pleaded guilty on Friday to criminal gang participation, possession of a firearm by a felon, and two counts of intimidation with a deadly weapon in the shooting death of 23-year-old Choice Ellison.
Mustin, a member of the Heavy Hitters street gang, was riding in the same car as Elliston on May 9th of 2017. Authorities say Mustin became involved in a shootout with another vehicle of rival members of the C-Block gang.
Mustin shot Elliston in the head during the battle, killing him.
